We Install T.A.P Pest Control Insulation
Stop pests and save money! In Los Angeles and Orange County’s temperate climate, few people give a thought to their home’s insulation. The fact is many people are literally throwing money out the door because their homes are poorly insulated. Replacing or upgrading your insulation will save you money, repel pests and make for a more comfortable home. This can help prevent the need for a rat exterminator!
Huh? A pest control company installing insulation? While that might be strange at first glance, we are frequently in people’s attics, repairing damage caused by a variety of pests and removing rodent waste.
If you’ve had a rodent or other mammal problem in your attic, cleaning out and replacing your insulation is a must-do. Most rodent or mammal waste contains dangerous diseases and bacteria such as hanta virus, salmonella, and bubonic plague to name a few. By removing and replacing your insulation after a rodent or mammal nesting, you can prevent the spread of these diseases and improve the smell within your home.
We exclusively offer T.A.P Insulation, a specially treated, blown in cellulose insulation that repels common household pests such as termites, ants, beetles, cockroaches, silverfish and a number of other commonly found household pests. Because of the pest repellant properties of T.A.P. insulation, only licensed pest control companies such as Admiral Pest Control can install T.A.P. Insulation.
Prior to 1972, homes in Southern California were not required to have insulation in the walls. Furthermore, the attic was typically to a value of less than the EPA recommended value of R-30. This leaves most homes in Southern California severely under insulated and homeowners are literally letting money escape out their front doors. By upgrading your insulation to a value of at least R-30, you’ll save money on both your heating and cooling bills. One state housing authority found that with proper insulation, heating and cooling bills were reduced by more than 30%.
